Design an program in Python 2.7 which reads a file with patchpanel and wiring configuration, selects a given set of patchpanels from the cmdline and output a drawing (preferably svg) with a more or less optimal placement of the patchpanels and the wiring between them.
Note that normally there are 4-6 patchpanels per page, the 2 larger ones are left and right of the page, the smaller ones at the bottom. Lines between them go either vertical or horizontal and only make 45 or 90 degree angles to switch "grid". The filled/open connectors on the patchpanels themself should be drawn, as that indicates if the connection between them is in use and comes from another file. Include a helper function which mocks that state (closed/open).
Attached is a sample configuation, you can keep the parser for it simple as I already have one. Also attached is a sample output PDF, although the output does not show the rectangles for the patchpanels themselfs. (This project should include those.)
Program has to run from the Linux cmdline, no use of X, be adequately documented, written in pythonic python 2.7, e.g. pep8 warning free.
I'm looking for candidates skilled in writing python, don't bother replying if you lack this skill.
(readding iaf-SMF-fiber.pdf, hope it works this time)
Ok, I've added a manually created pdf (iaf-SMF-panth.pdf), this time with the patch panels drawn in. Please note I got bored of filling in all the port numbers, each port should have one however!
